As the 2023 Presidential race is fast approaching, the Presidential Aspirants have been reaching out to their loyalists in their various Political Parties ahead 2023 Presidential race. However, the Peoples Democratic Party PDP has zoned the Position of National Chairman of the Party to the North which means the Presidency will likely be zoned to the South. It should be recalled that the Leaders of the Party had earlier zoned the Position of National Chairman of the Party to the South before they changed their decision.
Meanwhile, the Party had set up the Committee, headed by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi to look into the zoning system of the Party ahead the National Convention which is slated to hold by October 30th to 31st. However, Some Leaders of the Party from the South could be Paired with Northern PDP Leaders to clinch the Presidential ticket of the Party as the Party may likely zone the Presidency to the South because the North cannot get both Presidency and National Chairman of the Party.
One of the PDP Leaders in the South that could be Paired with Northern Leader is the former Governor of Osun State, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola. Prince Oyinlola could be Paired with Rabiu Kwankwaso who is the Former Governor of Kano State. It should be recalled that Prince Oyinlola was the former Governor of Osun State and he spent seven and half years before he was removed by the Federal High Court.
Also, Rabiu Kwankaso was the former Governor of Kano State and he contested the 2019 Presidential race but he could not emerge as the Presidential candidate of the Party. He was defeated by Atiku during the Primary Election. The Reason why Oyinlola is best fit to contest Presidential race is that Oyinlola was one of the PDP Leaders in southwest, who agitated for the Position of National Chairman. Therefore, Oyinlola could be compensated with Presidential Ticket under the Platform of the Party. Then the reason why Kwankaso may be paired with Oyinlola is that Kwankaso is one of the Biggest States in the North that used to determine the faith of Every Presidential Candidate in election whether the Candidate is going to win or lose. Though, Oyinlola has never show interest to contest Presidential Race but he can be Persuaded to contest Presidential race since the zoning system is not going to favour him to contest for the Position of National Chairman of the Party.
Another PDP Leader from the South that could be Paired with Northern Leader is the former Governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayo Fayose. Fayose may be Paired with the Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Tambuwal. Fayose had earlier shown interest for the Position of National Chairman of the Party when the Leaders of the Party zoned the Position of National Chairman to the South before they changed their decision and zoned the National Chairman to the North.
The Party Leaders may use the Presidential ticket to compensate Fayose and Pick Tambuwal from the North as his running Mate. The Combination of Fayose and Tambuwal will pave way for PDP in 2023 Presidential race, If they could be considered by the Leaders of the Party. Fayose can also be Persuaded to contest Presidential race since the zoning system may not favour Fayose to contest for the Position of National Chairman of the Party
